I think you're referring to the bolt.

I should rephrase: I don't have another lease. I have $3,000 Costco credit. Assuming Buying Power disscused upthread means buying the whole lease outright, that shouldn't be a problem. Is there a specific dealership to go to? What am I looking at final value before the NJ rebate?

Buying Power is like points earned with a GM card that gives you cash value when you purchase or lease a GM vehicle.

Is it a bad idea to buy out my Pacifica? The residual price is reasonable (not excellent), and I know the car as I was the only one that drove it.

My concern is that there isn't enough reliability data on the Pacifica, as it is a relatively new car design from 2017.

Bad idea. These chryslers don't last. Better off getting rid of your lease and buying a used sienna or odyssey.

Used Odyssey’s are overpriced right now.

True so go with a sienna. In general the odyssey is more expensive.

Used cars are overpriced about 16% higher nationally and more in certain markets due to COVID.  I would wait a few more months, if possible, for prices to stabilize.

I can’t really wait. My lease is up in a couple weeks.

My concern is that there isn't enough reliability data on the Pacifica, as it is a relatively new car design from 2017.

 I once asked a very busy mechanic on his experience with used minivans, he told me that sienna will have the longest life, a lot of people driving at 250k miles with no issues, odysse is a decent runner up, and the pacifica is the car he makes his parnasah from.. total piece of garbage beyond the first 30-50k miles, only a good option for a lease. He told me to stay away from a used pacifica. I didn't ask him on the sedona as it wasn't relevant at the time.

Prices for used siennas and even odysses are indeed through the roof now.

I can't wait. Seeing how used Odyssey's are now overpriced, would you say it's better to buy new? It seems that new and used (3 yrs or less) are only about a 5-7k difference at the moment.
